Thank you again! We are young researches from a University in Germany. Our research is part of our Phd studies and aims to address questions of academic relevance. We do not collaborate with Fiverr or any other organization. However, the results of our research might appear in our dissertations as well as academic journals. If anything derived from your statements will be used in our final research paper, it will of course be pseudonymized. But our primary intention is to enhance our understanding of what your experiences are with this kind of work.
About our research: Recent scholarly work often portrays platform-mediated work in the gig-economy as the counterpart to what they call “craft” (see definition above). Nevertheless, we often stumbled upon the term craft across several different platforms (like for instance Fiverr). We are interested in a non-academic perspective on this issue – a perspective of people who really know what they are talking about as they are part of this economy. So, we are interested in your individual perspective on this kind of work and its meaning to you in order to enhance the scholarly understanding of what is often labeled decisive for the future of work.
